This teaching case models the process used to create a “proof of concept” data warehouse and On-line Analytical Processing (OLAP) Cube for admissions at small, private, Midwestern university. Students will use test data to design Star Schemas and create OLAP cubes to show how they could be used for data mining purposes. This case attempts to build an understanding of the design and use of data warehouses and OLAP cubes within a larger data mining course.
